ICC ODI Rankings [Updated], Teams, Batsmen, Bowlers, And All-rounders Before World Cup 2023. The 2023 ICC ODI World Cup is set to be hosted in India from October 5 to November 19. The tournament was originally scheduled to be hosted in February-March but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of ten teams, including the defending champions, England (who won the 2019 edition of the quadrennial tournament), will take part in the 2023 ODI World Cup.
The tournament is played in a round-robin format with two groups of five teams each, followed by knockouts that are contested by the two top teams from each group.

A total of 48 matches will be played in the 2023 ODI World Cup.
The best cricketers from across the world will represent their respective nations in the 2023 World Cup. Let us take a look at the ICC ODI rankings of batsmen, bowlers, and all-rounders ahead of the tournament, as there are expected to be some massive changes in the rankings once the tournament is over.
